At Easter as in winter. All the beauty of skiing

From Valle d’Aosta to the Dolomites, opportunities not to be missed

An Easter with lots of snow and still winter temperatures. Perfect, therefore, to spend on skis. Especially since there are many promotions at the end of the season and not a few opportunities to have fun: competitions, events, concerts on the slopes, ski at dawn or at night.

Races and descents at dawn. In Piedmont the most anticipated Easter egg is that of the Vialattea: here, Saturday March 31st, young athletes from all over Italy will take to the track for the “Uovo d’Oro Audi” trophy. A competition that includes two venues: Sestriere for downhill skiing and Pragelato for Nordic skiing. Who then wants to extend the holiday can take advantage of the Free Ski offer: if you book the stay from 1 to 8 April you have a free ski pass. Skiing on skis also at La Thuile: March 30th, children and teenagers will meet at the starting gate for the Easter Egg Race, while the big ones will compete in the 41st edition of «Easter Slalom».
For those who aspire to ski with a true champion the right destination is the Val d’Ultimo, above Merano: booking a week immediately after Easter, you can spend a day of skiing together with the blue Dominik Paris. If the desire to ski is so much that you can not sleep, you can take the opportunity at dawn: on March 31 on the Presena glacier is scheduled the appointment of Trentino Skisunrise. You go up in altitude at 5.15 am, you can admire the sunrise and after a hearty breakfast you leave the first track on the snow in the company of ski instructors.
This is the right time to enjoy the winter holidays: in Pontedilegno-Tonale, as in the whole Val di Sole, the “Easter on ski skipass included” offer is valid: seven nights with a six-day Superskirama season ticket for skiing in eight locations. And in the Dolomiti Superski carousel, a day’s holiday is free thanks to the “Dolomiti Supersun” promotion.
Skiing at dawn but also at night at the Corvatsch, a stone’s throw from St. Moritz: Friday 30 is the Snow Night with a descent on the longest illuminated piste in Switzerland and a discounted ski pass for groups of 5 people. At Pasquetta instead climb at 6 am in the morning and descend with the first rays of the sun.
Dips, barbecues and concerts. Skis and swimsuit: the perfect suit for the crazy appointment of Aprica, The Splash Ride. Saturday 31 all ready for a descent with a final dive: in the Campetti area will be set up a special pool. Even more grilled pool in Gressoney-La-Trinité, in the ski carousel of Monterosa Ski, where on 2 April we dive and challenge ourselves in front of the grid with the Spring Barbecue Contest.
You even skip a river in Morgins, in the Franco-Swiss area of ​​the Portes du Soleil: the best freestylers in the world can do the job, and they meet here on March 30th and 31st for the 7Peaks Riverstyle contest. A 23-meter flight accompanied by music and DJ sets. And it is precisely the music that punctuates Easter in Pontedilegno: on the 1st of April it is celebrated in rap rhythm with the concert by Jake La Furia. The Presena glacier turns into an open-air disco, as well as the slopes of the Spinale area in Campiglio: March 31 will perform the French top deejay Bob Sinclar.
Markets and tradition. Last skis and shopping: it is the pairing on which Courmayeur points. In Pasquetta, the stalls of the Foire de la Paquerette invade the center of the town with the products of the Valle d’Aosta craftsmanship, while Saturday, April 8, the appointment with the Black Saturday returns. Pure tradition instead in Bormio, where we must not miss the appointment with the Pasquali, the allegorical floats. But the Valtellina also takes its throat: in Valgerola on 2 April you can take part in a walk with six stages dedicated to chocolate tastings.
Skiing and flea markets will be the protagonists of the Easter weekend in Fiera di Primiero, near San Martino di Castrozza: lots of stalls plus a program of activities with walks in the company of llamas or aboard a carriage.
